Cornerstones’ Coat Drive Begins Saturday

cornerstones2Nov. 1 marks the beginning of Cornerstones annual coat drive.

The Reston nonprofit that helps people who are homeless or experiencing poverty has been collecting coats for those in need the last few weeks. The organization will continue collecting new or gently used coats through November in order to aid those in the community who can use a warm winter jacket as winter approaches.

Need a coat?

Stop by 11484 Washington Plaza West at Lake Anne Plaza, Room 320. Hours: Tuesdays, 10 a.m. to noon; Thursdays, 6 to 8 p.m.; Saturdays, 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Closed on Federal Holidays and Saturday, Nov. 29.

Have coats to give?

Cornerstones will take donations of children and adult-sized coats, as well as new hats, gloves and scarves, at the same location. All sizes are needed, but there is an extra need from children’s sized and men’s XXL-5XL.
